Life lessons learned

 

Elizabeth Rangel, a 1998 graduate of Lake Roosevelt High School who now works as an outreach assistant at Highline Community College in Des Moines, Wash., spoke to local middle school and high school students Monday, divulging secrets of physical and sexual abuse she had held close while she was a teenager. Rangel, who graduated from Central Washington University while working full time and with a new daughter, said she'd led a hard life and made hard choices. "Don't tell yourself you can't do it," she said. "... I come from the same community you come from." - Scott Hunter photo
